Journey 19th November – 4th December

Had a great time at last night’s opening at G90 – Thanks to all at G90 and those who attended the private view.  So nice to see so many friends at the private view and meet some collectors!  The exhibition is now open and I’ve included a picture of one of the new works from the triptych. Hope you can get to see some of the work at the Gallery – G90 is a fantastic space great layout and it’s been an awesome opportunity for me to lay out a series of work in one space for the first time.  Also one of the main comments I received about the artwork last night was it’s scale, most people had only seen work online and did not realise the size of the pieces especially the new triptych which loom over you as you come into the gallery space.  So if you get the chance come along to G90 The address is at the bottom of this post.

Looking to October

Started working on some new pieces for shows coming up in October and now planning a solo show which is pencilled in for the 12th of November, here’s some details of what is coming up

Great to be invited to show 3 new pieces of work for the new show Factory Project which opens on the 13th October, curated by Jewel goodby the show pulls together some of the finest names on the street art scene some of which I was lucky to show with at the red bull studios project earlier this year – it looks like it’s gonna be a top show and will feature artwork and live paints from artists including Inkie – Fin Dac – Zeus – Max Wiedemann – George Morton Clark – Ben Slow – Cosmo Sarson – Danny O’Connor – Milo – Joanna Scislowicz – Belinda Frikh – Laura Tinald – Warren Fox – and the good lady herself – Jewel

Been working on a few ideas for the show and I’m gonna throw some fresh approaches and experimental pieces in there along with a recently finished piece from the studio called devoured.. Getting inspiration from other artists in the Studio @ Norlington Road too – so I doth my cap to Fashion Photographer Arta Kane and painter Paul Cummings  and all those craftsman around whose skills range from stained glass specialists to makers of theatrical animatronics Jonathan & Jeremy.

Here’s the latest piece from the studio which will be making its way to The Hospital Club this month..

Finally I will have some new work as part of the opening show at Leytonstone’s Stone Space.  The show – entitled ‘Unwrapped’ is a curated collection of work from local and guest artists responding to the theme unwrapped and features installation, paste-up work, drawings, paintings, model making and sculpture all within an intimate new gallery space just 5 mins from Leytonstone tube… The exhibition opens this Saturday 1st October plus The Stone Space is celebrating the Launch with a private view on the 13th October. Hope you can make it down – back to the studio for me… & some research for a new body of work…

finally a little shout to inkd gallery  in Brighton – you guys really do rock!

Studio Time

It’s been a busy couple of weeks with this project and that project, upcoming shows and opportunities but I’ve neglected the studio so I thought I’d post a work in progress and fill in a little of what shows are coming up in the month of October

Here’s an as yet untitled piece (I’ve got a couple of ideas for the title but undecided yet how it will finish)  I’ve also been filming some work in the studio against my better judgement! but to use as promo for an upcoming show.. I’ve made a video of part of this work in progress which I will be uploading soon.

So apart from planning some work with local community projects, The Stone Space and helping Co-ordinate the Drawing Crowds exhibition with fellow artist El Bedlow, I have prepared work for upcoming shows and been fortunate enough to have work accepted with the following galleries.

Inkd Gallery – a fantastic space down on North Road in Brighton – They have just received ‘uprooted’ and ‘take cover’ (shown below).  I am particularly pleased with the uprooted piece as it represents an area of drawing which I strive to bring into my work but is not something I can force… if you get a chance to pop into Inkd – ask to have a look at the piece – it may be tucked away in a drawer for safekeeping for now but I’m hoping it will grace their walls soon

  
Uprooted & Take Cover – now showing with Inkd Gallery

Opus have requested 4 pieces from the violence of flowers series, the works Crushed, Taunted, Torn and Smother are available online from their website now.

I will be participating in a number of shows coming up in October,

Multiplied contemporary editions fair at Christies with Eyestorm where I will be showing the ltd edition prints of Rose.

Then in mid October I will be showing some brand new pieces at an exhibition at the Hospital Club with West London Art Factory – put together by Jewel Goodby and featuring the following confirmed artists, Inkie / Carne Griffiths / Max Wiedemann / George Morton-Clarke / Ben Slow / Danny O’Connor / Fin Dac / Zeus / Cosmo Sarson / Milo / Warren J Fox / Jewel / Laura Tinald / Belinda Frikh / Joanna Scislowicz /
Then at the end of October I will be showing 6 original pieces with Eyestorm from the Violence of flowers at the Affordable Art Fair @ Hamspstead Heath….

Then there is a possibility of a solo show at the end of Oct too… but I’ll fill in more about that when I know what’s happening.

If you would like any more information about any of the shows or are interested in any of the work just drop me an email to carne@carnegriffiths.com

 

Looking forward to getting into the studio tomorrow!
